Electrolux Signs Sustainable Fuel Deals to Cut Sea Freight Emissions

By Dominic Chopping

 

STOCKHOLM--Electrolux AB said Wednesday that it will now use more sustainable fuels for 25% of its total sea freight as it works toward halving its transport emissions by 2025.

By partnering with shipping companies A.P. Moeller-Maersk AS and CMA CGM to use biofuel based on waste oils and liquefied natural gas, Electrolux said it will reduce its sea-transport greenhouse-gas emissions by 15% in 2022.

The agreement with Maersk involves using a second-generation biofuel that is a blend of used cooking oil and standard fuel which generates 88% less greenhouse gas emissions than bunker fuel and is certified as a sustainable fuel by the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification body, it said.

The agreement with CMA CGM will use a solution based on liquefied natural gas and guarantee of origin biomethane, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 25% compared with bunker fuel, Electrolux said.
